Yes, you heard it right. You can ask for a customized souvenir or pearl accessory while you wait. There’s a store in Aldevinco (just across Ateneo de Davao University Jacinto campus) that sells pearl accessories for souvenirs that can create your personalized accessory upon request. I was amazed that such stores exists. I thought the souvenir shops only sell malongs, pearls, key chains and other locally made items to tourists off the rack.
Last Saturday as I was giving my teachers a tour of the city, we stopped by Waida Pearl and Accessories. They have varied choices of pearl and beaded accessories that suit your budget. One thing that captured our interest was when the attendant offered that she can prepare the earrings and bracelet that we want as we wait. Hmmm…
We picked a string of pearls from their stock, chose a design and after a few minutes, the brand new pearl bracelet was finished! We were delighted and satisfied. Thanks ate (sorry I forgot your name) for making us smile.
So when in Davao, you may want to consider exploring stores in Aldevinco and have your personalized souvenirs made in a jiffy.
